Hello guys,▼63 comments
we wanted to share our concerns with you.
We all know that KAT is widely known and popular web site, with an amazing community, needless to say:)
But here is the dark side of this popularity, while we are doing our best in order to keep our site nice and cozy there are bunch of lazy bastards who are simply decided to copycat us.
They are stealing our design and our name with the only purpose of misleading people.
Some of them are selling ridiculously expensive VPNs on our behalf, some are throwing malicious ads, some are trying to sell various subscriptions, others simply gathering user passwords and so on. All of them are trying to cheat people in various ways.
On our side we are working on the solution that will allow us to ban those impersonators and copycats. And we kindly ask you to check what site you are visiting and what links you are clicking, if you are not seeing https://kat.cr or any of our safe proxies on your address bar then you are not visiting genuine KAT. You can even report those questionable sites to their hosting service providers.
Please remain vigilant.

Good day our dear KAT citizens, here is a short summary for you of what we've done lately.▼219 comments
We have a new tracker refresh mechanism aka 'Scraper', you'll might notice that we do not show individual tracker stats in the Torrent Technical Tab, but don't get upset, new Scraper will update torrent's seeders and leechers info automatically on a constant basis, like in the real time, the most popular torrents will get the most frequent refreshes, way better and prompt than our previous manual refresh method.
We've created new uploader status Elite Uploader, you cannot ask for it, but you can be recommended to become one, so if you see an Elite Uploader marked with a purple star, it means that you are looking at an original content provider and not torrent dumper.
A small but useful site trust check. Now, on the external link confirmation screen you will see site reputation mark that shows whether you can trust this web site or not, this simple action aims to protect you from phishing attempts and keep your sensitive data secure.
Always keep in mind that internal site links never require confirmation.
Also we are now using StopForumSpam API to keep our community clean.
And a lot of bug fixes, security fixes, new achievements, amazing retina icons, several new languages (thanks to our devoted translators), youtube bbcode tag, mobile chat and...well, you name it.

Today KAT staff is congratulating all of you with Torrents Day! Hurrah!
Our Staff member Bubanee177.22K has put a fantastic Torrents Day 2015 music Album which songs were chosen by you guys which is now available for download. Below..
Also, KAT's Super User DawnStar34.43K has prepared an article regarding the happy day, which we recommend you to read in KAT fan made magazine
Here are few quotes from the article:
Torrents Day is upon us once again. This most special of days, March 30th. When asked to go out into KAT world and dig up a story for this issue I was armed with only one piece of information – talk to Mr.Pink200.89K .
Asked if he is aware if the day is marked with any of the other Torrent sites Mr. Pink said:
“A lot of users between sites jump back and forward and I reckon every torrent site has given it a mention on that day. Extratorrents gives it some backing every year also. Its nice to know the day isn’t just restricted to kickasstorrents because the day is aimed at all pirates from around the world.”
Mr. Pink says it makes him very proud to see that Torrents Day continues to get bigger and better - as a result bigger sites are giving it recognition all around the world. With admin and staff from KAT continuing to have competitions and achievements each year it brings more and more traffic to the site to upload and download, “And that’s what we want. It’s these users that are important and make the site what it is, so as always, we will be expecting high numbers for traffic on this day and of course, we want the users to enjoy being here.”
In a brief interview with Mr.Gooner343.9K , he replied:
“Well there's no doubt that Torrents Day was a genius idea, bringing everyone together & creating a tradition we will always remember. Therefore it's definitely something I/we believe should be continued yearly grabbing as much attention as possible. A torrent site of course encourages users to upload torrents and a day like Torrents Day is the perfect way in every way. Users uploading on the day should at least be added to the small text in the rules as I am sure you will ALL agree.”
Don't forget we have plenty more fun, games and competitions..
KAT staff is wishing Mr.Pink200.89K a Happy Birthday and everyone to have a great Torrents Day! ;)

Psss, wanna some candy? ;)▼256 comments
When the Pussycat Dolls called it quits in 2010, group member Jessica Sutta shifted her focus to her solo career and has continued to make a buzz with her dance hits “Show Me,” “Again,” and “Lights Out" as well as featuring on Dave Aude's track "Make it Last" and Paul Van Dyk's "White Lies."
Watch Jessica strut her stuff in the “Candy” music video, here on Kickass. The singer lives up to the song’s title, surrounding herself with all things sweet — lollipops, Mike & Ikes, gumballs, and peppermint sticks. “Candy” is from Jessica’s forthcoming album, Feline Resurrection, which includes production from Rico Love, Benny Cassette, and S-X. Though "Candy" is more familiar territory in terms of sound, Jessica is excited to share the diversity and edginess of the unchartered territory she ventures into with the rest of the album.
Though Jessica has had 3 number 1 songs on the Billboard Dance Charts as an independent artist in the US, she has yet to crossover fully and become a household name like the Dolls were collectively. The cool thing about Jessica is that she has refused to take the shortcuts offered to her through the reality TV route and other avenues that she says would have prevented her from being in tune with her moral compass, just to get ahead.
"There are so many ways to get noticed in this business. It's so corrupt and i've witnessed what happens if you kiss the right asses and well…. do other things with the "right" people…. Lets just say I would rather lead with music and performance which is what I love and do it at whatever pace I can, without losing my integrity. I love to wear sexy, skimpy outfits and be adventurous with my looks but it doesn't mean i'm willing to sell my soul for accelerated success. Ultimately the goal is to be happy right? How could I ever be happy knowing I am not being the best person I can be," says the pop star exclusively to Kickass!
Jessica's response when asked about why she is making the song available for free download: "I am more of the Dave Grohl school of thought when it comes to giving away music. Times have changed and you have to be prepared to change your business model with the times. Most kids nowadays get their music for free. Why fight that? I would rather embrace it and make sure they at least get the high quality versions of the songs. More importantly, I would rather get my songs heard by many who downloaded them for free rather than to sell it to a fraction of that number. As an artist, I want my art to be heard. I want my art to be seen. If I can connect with more people through this avenue, then I am all for it."
